On Saturday night my sister her husband and his family went to Horatio Todd's for a family night out. I think because we rave about it so much. She asked after dinner if they would reserve seats for their guests in the bar as Saturday night in the bar is always so busy. They don't reserve seats (especially not a... More

Have just had a great night with 4 mates at HTs enjoying the delicious (not to mention great value for money )food, wine, lovely surroundings, and top notch service from our waiter Johnny who never stopped all night making sure everything was to our liking. If carlsberg did waiters.... Well done Horatio Todds for training your staff so well, we... More

Our experience with this restaurant started badly. We're visiting from Canada, so we used Visit Belfast, the official visitor's website, to find out that HT's opened at 11:30AM. Since we were hungry for an early lunch we turned up at 11:40 - only to find the gates locked. My companion walked around to the open back gate to enquire and... More

We ate here this evening along with another couple we are friends with and were impressed by the food. 3 courses and a glass of wine for 16 pounds is an excellent offer- and the food is not treated like its on offer. Not a huge fan of the chilli flakes on my rosemary frites and didn't feel this accompanied... More

Return visit to Todd's for dinner with my sister for her birthday mid August. Had booked a table and glad I did, when we arrived it wasn't to busy, but an hour later most of the table were taken.. We ordered 1 each of the special deals - 2 courses £13.95pp and 3 courses £15.95pp with a glass of wine... More

Sunday night dinner was characterised by slow service and awful food - everything including the chips was poisoned by overuse of chilli flakes. I like spicy food but this was just yuck ! No menus for 15 mins, another 15 before the order was taken and then 20 mins before the starter made it to the table. Bizarrely the chicken... More

Nice decor, but vegetarian food is diabolical. Mmmm, lovely gnochi swimming in mushroom juice. If that doesn't appeal to you there's always a goats cheese tart! Sums up unimaginative token veggie food everywhere: mushrooms, goats cheese and awful pasta. Yuck!

Dear Daniel, I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the gnocchi. It has been a popular option, but on this occasion it sounds like the dish was not given the due care and attention we expect. Please be assured I have raised this issue with our Chefs. Catering for Vegetarians is important to us and our Chefs are always happy to come... More

Nice decor and ambiance.However paid £5.50 for a glass of house wine and £4.00 for a Baileys last Saturday evening 30 August 2014.More like central London prices than Belfast prices. We only stayed for one drink.!

Dear ColinT, Thank you for your positive comments about the décor and ambience. I am sorry that the pricing seemed excessive. We always try to price our items to be reflective of quality whilst still retaining value. Incidentally the wine you chose would be one of our better wines and not house, however we apologise if this wasn’t clear enough... More

This was a really good, if not mind blowing, restaurant. Well priced.2 or 3 course meals with a glass of wine thrown in. Very reasonable. Would return. Attentive staff and good service. No complaints.

Service? What service? We didn't get any? Just shown the door. HT's has lost touch with current societal trends. A civilised group of four cyclists turn up for a quick drink or two after a sunny evening ride. Surely nothing better than a few drinks in their outdoor seating area on a summer's evening? Ah, but there's a rigid poorly... More

Dear Tim-j-w I absolutely agree with your comments and apologise unreservedly for the discomfort and embarrassment caused to you and your party. We do have a "no sports wear" policy, and I think you understand why, but it should not be applied so rigidly. Unfortunately, on the night of your visit, the member of staff who made this decision had... More
